My first Jim Redcay racing bike, circa 1974, had a different approach than drillium.

Among the components was a prototype Nitto Pearl stem, with all alloy hardware and drilled up the middle. It also had an alloy Hatta Swan prototype headset, Hi-E hubs., Super Champion Arc-n-Ciels, first year Suntour Cyclone derailleurs, a Teledyne spindle, Sugino SL cranks, Bob Reedy pedals, alloy rail TTT saddle, Conti 240 gram tires (the good handmade ones), Dura-Ace brakes, TTT sl bars, Zeus alloy freewheel.

Lets just say I was a pretty focussed, in my way, eighteen year old.

19 lhonest bs. And stout. And at least my saddle had padding and leather. Boy was I blue when that got stolen a few years later.
